What Did Bush Know and When Did He Know It

Strangely enough, George Bush has thus far escaped blame for the Plamegate scandal. But as I suggested two months ago, the real story concerns the President's involvement in the scandal. Just as was asked of President Nixon, we need to know 1) what Bush knew and 2) when he knew it. We are dealing with a massive loss of intelligence assets during the midst of the War on Terror, so this story should be front page news each and every day.

Now the Dark Lord of the Sith himself, conservative shill columnist Bob Novak, says that Bush knows who the source of the leak is and should admit it. Novak, if you recall, got this entire affair started to begin with when he leaked Plame's name in his godawful column. Novak is a major Washington insider, especially among conservatives, so if he is making this claim, you can bet there is truth to it.

Should Bush have been involved with Plame's outing, that would certainly constitute a "high crime and misdemeanor" giving rise to impeachment under the Bill Clinton standard. The corporate media needs to stop reporting about irrelevant shootings aboard airplanes and start doing actual investigating.
